Public and councils offer free meals to children after government refuses to fund them – BBC News

Cafes, pubs and restaurants – as well as some local councils – have stepped in to offer free school meals for children in England during half term, after the government refused to fund them.

The footballer Marcus Rashford, who has campaigned on the issue, says he will continue to press the government to change its mind and offer free meals during school holidays.
